Medical disposable gloves are an essential attribute of a medical professional. They are a means of protection for both the doctor and the patient during examinations, blood sampling, and injections. Protect against infectious and contact diseases.
They are used not only in medicine. They are also used at home when working with paint, household chemicals and aggressive cleaning agents.
Disposable gloves are popular in catering establishments: canteens, cafes, restaurants, where they are used during cooking.
The most common material used to make disposable gloves is latex. In some cases, powder is used, which makes the product easier to put on. However, even the safest cornstarch powder can cause wounds to become infected. That is why now they use products without powder.
Disposable gloves are divided into two types:
surgical. They are sterile and come in different sizes.
diagnostic. Used for inspections.
Latex is made from natural and synthetic rubber. Accordingly, latex can be natural or synthetic (polyisoprene, nitrile, vinyl).
Polyisoprene disposable gloves are similar in structure to natural latex. They are elastic, soft, but very often cause allergic reactions, so they are rarely used by medical professionals.
Nitrile gloves are suitable for laboratory workers as they are more resistant to alcohol, oils and formaldehyde. These rubber products are sold cheaply in our pharmacy. Gloves of this type do not cause allergies and are very durable. In addition, they are often used in somatology and cosmetology. The disadvantages include poor elasticity. In some cases, the use of nitrol gloves can cause dermatitis.
Vinyl gloves are made from a hazardous substance and have a high degree of permeability. This allows germs and other harmful substances to pass through them. Such gloves are not suitable even for routine examination of patients. Their only advantage is their low cost compared to other products.
Powderiness is an important characteristic. Powdered gloves are not suitable for extended wear. This is due to the fact that the powder can provoke allergies and causes the multiplication of pathogens. Such products are suitable for short-term use: patient examination, etc.
When choosing gloves, you need to pay attention to the roller located on the wrist. It secures the product to the wrist. It is important that it does not curl outward, as this can lead to infection. If there is no cushion on the glove, then there should be a cuff that fits snugly around the wrist. Otherwise, such products are of poor quality and cannot be used for medical purposes.
In addition, gloves should fit snugly around the wrist. If it does not hold on to the hand, it cannot be used for working with patients.
